Podcast: Boom pulls ahead in the supersonic race

written by Robyn Tongol | June 9, 2021


United Airlines announced this week it is locked in to purchase up to 50 supersonic commercial airliners from Boom Supersonic, in a ground-breaking multibillion-dollar deal.

In this episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and reporter Hannah Dowling discuss the details of the deal, and its significance following the recent demise of rival supersonic jet-maker Aerion.

Plus, the team shares their thoughts on a senior FAA safety official who finally stepped down from his role, after facing harsh criticism for not implementing adequate safety investigations into the 737 MAX following the first of two fatal crashes.

Also, the crew talks about the extension of ‘no alcohol onboard’ policies by a number of airlines, as instances of physical and verbal abuse against cabin crew continue to rise.
